10 Stages of Becoming Friends in College

Because of the freedom and the fact that you’re all so close in proximity, it’s a lot easier to make friends in college than anywhere else. The other day I was thinking about how odd it is that the people that I met the first week of college are now my best friends and know everything about me. We’ve all been friends for a year and a half now and I think we all went through these 10 stages of becoming friends:

10. Hi my name is…


maybe you meet in a class or through a friend of a friend

9. The occasional greeting on campus


see each other from across the quad or in a building, give each other a wave & go about your day

8. The drunken hug


I think we all know how exciting seeing friends at parties is

7. Meeting up to do homework


unless you have an approaching deadline, this usually just results in a lot of talking and goofing around

6. Hanging out doing sober things


this includes laying, watching movies, & eating junk food- the trinity of friendship
